I got a four pack of the first batch of this summer. I burned through all four bottles really quickly, then I realized that I forgot to review any of them. At that point you couldn't find this beer anywhere.
This is a really amazing whole cone IPA. The smell coming off of this beer is really, really good. You get a bunch of citrus, but it fills your nostrils without punching you in the face. Of course there is some malt to balance this out.
The flavor is also a great experience. This is a hop-head's dream. I just love the strong citrus coming through immediately. There are some slight balance issues that will go away with a couple weeks more of aging.
This is a very good experience. If you find a four pack, then get it immediately.
